Restorative Procedures for Our Patients
South County Smiles offers a multitude of restorative treatment options, and we’re proud of the outcomes we’ve given patients during their visits. Issues such as tooth decay, missing teeth, and cracks are all solvable at our office. Restorative procedures we provide include the following:
We securely fit a dental crown over your natural tooth to effectively restore its size and shape. All crowns get custom-created to ensure a precise fit and a natural look next to the adjacent teeth. If you have a broken or damaged tooth that a filling won’t resolve, a dental crown works well to restore it. It provides strength to a tooth, so you get your bite and appearance back.
Inlays and Onlays
Our team uses these custom-fabricated restorations to replace fillings. After tooth decay, inlays and onlays fit on or in your teeth to repair structural loss, such as small cracks. After we’ve installed them, they blend perfectly with the natural tooth while restoring the lost or damaged tissue. If your current fillings are discolored or have incurred damage, we can restore them with inlays and onlays.
Dental Implant Restoration (Mini and Traditional)
Get a permanent solution to missing teeth with mini or traditional dental implants. They’re the closest option to your real teeth, and you’ll be able to chew, speak, and smile with confidence.
We use a composite material that’s colored like your natural teeth to reshape and cover teeth with staining, odd shaping, and other issues. Our team can fix discoloration, chips, cracks, and more using bonding as a solution.
When you’re losing an entire arch of your teeth, we’ll create immediate dentures to go in on the same day as your visit to remove your natural teeth. You won’t need to worry about waiting for dentures.
Dentures, Partials, and Bridges
With dentures, you get removable replacements for your natural teeth when you’ve lost the upper arch, lower arch, or both. When you’ve lost a few or several of your teeth, partial dentures fill the vacancy with real-looking artificial teeth on a base that holds itself in place with the adjacent natural teeth. For one or more missing teeth, you can get a permanent solution with a dental bridge. This device attaches one or more artificial teeth over the gums using crowns over the neighboring natural teeth.
